RHETORICAL DEVICES &
FIGURES OF SPEECH
(Bringing Brightness and
Buoyancy to Language: Prose & Poetry)
1. allegory: (Greek, ‘speaking otherwise’) It is a story, poem, or picture which can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one. It has a double meaning: a primary or surface meaning; and a secondary or under-the-surface meaning. It is a story, therefore, that can be read, understood and interpreted at two or more levels.
1. Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress is an allegory of Christian Salvation—the best known allegory in the English language. The whole work is a simplified representation of the average man’s journey through the trials and tribulations of life on his way to Heaven.
2. An early example of the use of allegory in literature is the myth of the Cave in Plato’s Republic. Other notable instances of allegory include Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels and George Orwell’s Animal Farm.
2. alliteration: (Latin, ‘repeating and playing upon the same letter’) The use of words starting with or containing the same letter or sound. It is a very old devise indeed in English verse and is used occasionally in prose.
1. Coleridge’s famous description of the sacred river Alph in Kubla Khan: ‘Five miles meandering with a mazy motion.’
2. Alliteration is common in tongue-twisters: Betty Botter bought some butter,
But, she said, the butter’s bitter;
If I put it in the batter
It will make my batter bitter,
But a bit of better butter,
That would make my batter better.
3. anacoluthon: (Greek, ‘back bending’) A sentence or construction in which the expected grammatical sequence is absent, considered an error in Grammar. Beginning a sentence in one way and continuing or ending it in another—used as a rhetorical device to achieve a particular effect.
1. While in the garden, the door banged shut. (Error in Grammar)
2. You know what I—but let’s forget it! (Rhetorical Device)
4. anadiplosis: (Greek, ‘doubling’) The repetition of the last word of one clause at the beginning of the following clause to gain a special effect.
1. Dr Johnson’s Rambler No. 21: ‘Labour and care are rewarded with success,
success produces confidence,
confidence relaxes industry,
and negligence ruins the reputation which diligence had raised.’
5. anaphora: (Greek, ‘carrying up or back’)
1. (Grammar) The use of a word referring back to a word used earlier in a text or conversation, to avoid repetition. For example: ‘I like it so do they.’
2. (Rhetoric) The repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of successive clauses.
For example: the lament for Lancelot in Malory’s Le Morte D’Arthur:
…. you were never matched of earthly knight’s hand;
and you were the most courteous knight that ever bore shield;
and you were the truest friend to your lover that ever bestrode horse;
and you were the truest lover of a sinful man that ever loved women;
and you were the kindest man that ever struck with sword;
and you were the goodliest person that ever came among press of knights;
and you were the meekest man and the gentlest that ever ate in hall among ladies;
and you were the sternest knight to your mortal foe that ever put spear in the rest.
6. anastrophe: (Greek, ‘turning back’: used in Rhetoric) The inversion of the usual order of words or clauses for a particular effect.
1. ‘The question between preaching extempore and from a written discourse, it does not properly fall within the province of this discourse to discuss on any but what may be called rhetorical principles.’ —Richard Whateley’s Elements of Rhetoric.
7. antithesis: (Greek, ‘opposition’) Fundamentally, contrasting ideas sharpened by the use of opposite or noticeably different meanings. An expression in which contrasting ideas are carefully balanced.
1. ‘Crafty men contemn studies; simple men admire them; and wise men use them.’—Bacon’s apophthegm
2. ‘Though studious, he was popular; though argumentative, he was modest; though inflexible, he was candid; and though metaphysical, yet orthodox.’—Dr Johnson
3. More haste, less speed.
8. antonomasia: (Greek, ‘naming instead’) 1. The substitution of an epithet or title for a proper name. and 2. The use of a proper name to express a general idea.
1. ‘the Maid of Orleans’ for Joan of Arc; 2. ‘the Bard’ for Shakespeare; 3. ‘a Gamaliel’ or ‘a Solomon’ for a wise man; 4. ‘a Daniel’ for a just man; 5. ‘a Casanova’ for a womanizer; 6. ‘a Hitler’ for a tyrant; and 7. ‘a Scrooge’ for a miser.
9. apostrophe: (Greek, ‘turning away’: used in Rhetoric) A figure of speech in which a thing, a place, an abstract quality, an idea, a dead or absent person is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.
1. ‘Sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain…”—Goldsmith’s opening of The Deserted Village
2. ‘O Judgement! Thou art fled to brutish beasts…’—Mark Anthony’s cry in Julius Caesar
3. ‘O Freedom! Hear our cry!

MBA : Ratio and Proportion (Notes)
We use numbers in everyday life quite frequently. One of the uses of numbers is for comparison. When two things of same kind are attributed numerical values, we are able to compare them. This comparison is expressed in phrases like ‘is greater than',' is multiple of’ etc.
Let us take an example , a familiar situation in which Vignette scored 17 runs while Vijay amassed 51 runs in an inning of cricket. Then we say,
1) Vijay scored 34 runs more than Vignette or Vignette
scored 34 runs less than Vijay or
(2) Vijay scored three times as many runs as Vignette or we say that Vignette scored only one third of the runs scored by Vijay. When we compare in the way as
(3), we are finding the ratio between the two numbers. In short, the ratio between two quantities ‘a’ and ‘b’( where b>0 is the value of fraction a/b in its lowest terms) Let us revise a few things about ratio.
The phrase, ‘the ratio of 17 to 51’ is written as
’17:51’ and read as ’17 is to 51’ While comparing two quantities in terms of
ratio, we must bear in mind the following:
1) The two quantities must be of same kind.
2) The units of measurement of the two quantities must be the same.
3) As the ratio denotes how many times is one quantity of the other, it is a pure number( without any unit of measurement)
For example: 4m : 80 cm=400cm: 80cm=5:1 1hr 30 min : 2 hrs 15 min=90 min:135min=2:3 The numbers involved in a ratio are called its ‘terms’ 1
That expression of a ratio, both of whose terms do not have common factor other than one, is called the ratio in its lowest terms. Thus by canceling the common factor of the two terms 105 and 135, we obtain the lowest form f the ratio 105:135 as 7:9. Percentage is a special kind of a ratio . it is a ratio having its second term 100. Please note down certain important aspects of ratios.
1) when we consider the ratio of two numbers as A:B ,then
the first number need not be ‘a’ and the second number need not be ‘b’.They
can be ka and kb, where k is any non zero multiple of a and b.
2) Two ratios a : b and c: d (a/b and c/d) are said to be equal if a x d = b x c.
3) If two ratios are A:B and B:C, they are briefly written as a:b:c.
For example: when we say that the ratio of measures of angle A angle B and angle C of triangle ABC are three is to four is to five( 3 :4 :5) We really mean to say that m< A : m<B=3:4 and m<B : m<C= 4:5. That is, we write the ratio 3:4 and 4:5 in brief as 3:4:5. Also ,when we say that ratio of four numbers is a : b : c : d, then we mean that the ratio of three pairs of numbers taken in order are a, b, c, c, d.
PROPORTION:- Proportion is a very familiar and an important mathematical concept. Let us try to understand this. Suppose a fruit seller tells you that the price of oranges is Rs.20 a dozen, that sirs 20 for 12 oranges If you want to buy six oranges, how do you determine their cost? As the number of oranges is half of one dozen, their cost also has to be half. Therefore, the cost of 6 oranges is half of rs.20 i.e. Rs 10. In other words, you think that the cost of oranges in proportion to their number.

Management Basics | Overview
(Page 2 of 3)
FUNCTIONS OF MANAGERS
The functions of a manager provide a useful framework for organizing management knowledge under the various heads of planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. Managerial functions are effective tools for managers to achieve the organization’s planned objectives. They include the general administrative duties that need to be carried out in virtually all organizations. Figure 1.2 depicts the management process and shows the various functions that managers are involved in. It is evident from the figure that managers are involved in more than one activity at the same time.
Planning can be defined as the process, by which, managers decide the mission and objectives of the firm and take necessary steps to achieve the desired objectives. At the same time, managers need to determine the future trends in business and incorporate change and innovation into the organization from time to time.
There are various types of plans and they may range from planning to define the overall purposes and objectives of an organization to planning for a specific action. Planning helps a firm decide its future course of action.

Research Methodology | Central Tendency
Explain the various measure of central tendency?
In statistics, the general level, characteristic, or typical value that is representative of the majority of cases. Among several accepted measures of central tendency employed in data reduction, the most common are the arithmetic mean (simple average), the median, and the mode. FOR EXAMPLE, one measure of central tendency of a group of high school students is the average (mean) age of the students. Central tendency is a term used in some fields of empirical research to refer to what statisticians sometimes call "location". A "measure of central tendency" is either a location parameter or a statistic used to estimate a location parameter. Examples include: #Arithmetic mean, the sum of all data divided by the number of observations in the data set.#Median, the value that separates the higher half from the lower half of the data set.#Mode, the most frequent value in the data set. Measures of central tendency, or "location", attempt to quantify what we mean when we think of as the "typical" or "average" score in a data set. The concept is extremely important and we encounter it frequently in daily life. For example, we often want to know before purchasing a car its average distance per litre of petrol. Or before accepting a job, you might want to know what a typical salary is for people in that position so you will know whether or not you are going to be paid what you are worth. Or, if you are a smoker, you might often think about how many cigarettes you smoke "on average" per day. Statistics geared toward measuring central tendency all focus on this concept of "typical" or "average." As we will see, we often ask questions in psychological science revolving around how groups differ from each other "on average". Answers to such a question tell us a lot about the phenomenon or process we are studying Arithmetic Mean The arithmetic mean is the most common measure of central tendency. It simply the sum of the numbers divided by the number of numbers. The symbol mm is used for the mean of a population. The symbol MM is used for the mean of a sample. The formula for mm is shown below: m=SXN m S X N where SX S X is the sum of all the numbers in the numbers in the sample and NN is the number of numbers in the sample. As an example, the mean of the numbers 1+2+3+6+8=205=4 1 2 3 6 8 20 5 4 regardless of whether the numbers constitute the entire population or just a sample from the population. The table, Number of touchdown passes, shows the number of touchdown (TD) passes thrown by each of the 31 teams in the National Football League in the 2000 season. The mean number of touchdown passes thrown is 20.4516 as shown below. m=SXN=63431=20.4516 m S X N 634 31 20.4516 Number of touchdown passes
Research Methodology | Questionnaire
What is questionnaire- mention its characteristics and illustrate a sample questionnaire for any product you can choose
Answer: Questionnaire is a method used for collecting data; a set of written questions which calls for responses on the part of the client; may be self-administered or group-administered. Questionnaires are an inexpensive way to gather data from a potentially large number of respondents. Often they are the only feasible way to reach a number of reviewers large enough to allow statistically analysis of the results. A well-designed questionnaire that is used effectively can gather information on both the overall performance of the test system as well as information on specific components of the system. If the questionnaire includes demographic questions on the participants, they can be used to correlate performance and satisfaction with the test system among different groups of users. It is important to remember that a questionnaire should be viewed as a multi-stage process beginning with definition of the aspects to be examined and ending with interpretation of the results. Every step needs to be designed carefully because the final results are only as good as the weakest link in the questionnaire process. Although questionnaires may be cheap to administer compared to other data collection methods, they are every bit as expensive in terms of design time and interpretation. The steps required to design and administer a questionnaire include:
Human Resource Management | Training
Explain the factors which mainly contribute to the importance of training for different types of managers and workers in an industry/organization.
The factors which mainly contribute to the importance of training for different types of manages and workers in an industry are,
- There is always shortage of skilled employees and it is always felt that the most direct attack on the problem of un-employment, can be made through expansion of vocational training and professional education
- Skill shortages have arised due to rapid technology changes. Managers are faced with labor markets in which the skilled man-power fails to meet the needs for the new skills requirement.
- Trained employee makes better and economical use of materials and equipment. Therefore, the wastage and shortage are lessened.
- The inevitability of hiring unemployables consequent upon the social goal of equal employment opportunities necessitate the adequate process of training and development facilities

Universities & University Colleges
Canada has a large selection of universities and university colleges. Canadian universities are largely publicly funded; as a result they are of a consistently high quality, regardless of location or area of study. They all retain a high degree of academic autonomy. They offer a broad range of courses and a full range of degrees from undergraduate to doctorates, and can also offer certificates and professional degrees. The university year usually runs from September to May. Some universities are on a semester or trimester system, with all courses available even in the summer. University Colleges offers university degrees as well as college diploma and certificate programs.
The Community Colleges offer certificate and diploma programs in career and vocational.training.
A technical/career college is a privately owned and operated school with the main objective of preparing students for the job market after a short period of instruction.
Admission Requirements vary from Institution to Institution, in Canada.
Successful completion of the equivalent of a Canadian secondary school academic program with strong marks. Proof of strong proficiency in English (or French if studies in French).
Students may be required to provide proof of language proficiency by way of a language proficiency test (For example TOEFL- Test of English as a Foreign Language administered by Educational Testing Service in USA, IELTS - International English Language Testing System administered by the British Council). Generally, Francophone universities require international students to complete their own test of French proficiency.
Some institutions have other forms of English or French language assessment; they may offer their own language proficiency test or, may admit students to academic programs on the basis of having successfully completed that institution's language program
There is no Canada wide entrance test as each university sets its own admission standards and assesses the qualifications of each applicant individually.
For seeking admission to an undergraduate course, a minimum of twelve years of education is the required qualification. Students pursuing the Indian School Certificate Examination (ISCE) have an advantage as ISCE system is similar to the British System and its is easy to interpret for the US colleges. In case of CBSE and State Boards the student may have to communicate course contents, level of study etc., to the university.
For any postgraduate programme, you need to have completed 16 years of education, i.e. 10+2+4. This means that you cannot pursue a master's course in Canada if you have completed a three year degree course in India. You therefore need to pursue a one year postgraduate diploma or a two year post graduate degree if you are interested in further studies in America/Canada.
Degree holders in Engineering and medicine however don't have any such problem.
Postgraduate Management Programme
Most colleges require an educational level of 10+2+3. The top colleges however insist on 10+2+4. In both cases, a minimum work experience of two years is also required.
Graduate Management Aptitude Test is required for the MBA aspirants. The test assesses the verbal, analytical and mathematical skills of the candidate. The test is held in a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) format and the candidate requires having the basic computer skills. Questions are displayed in the computer screen one at a time and system ‘adapts’ the level of the following questions based on the responses of the candidate. A score of 650 and above is considered excellent. The test is held in October, January, March and June all over the world and details on it are available in the test bulletin.
Selecting A College
Select at least eight colleges that match your requirements and goals. Out of these two should be your dream colleges – one which you have always wanted to be apart of. Select four colleges where you have 50-50 chances of getting admission. The last two choices will include sure bet colleges – where you have 100 per cent chances of getting in.
Identify about their programmes and recognize the biases and limitations of each. Focus on issues such as differences in curriculum, teaching approaches, placement, and financial aid.
The World Wide Web
All schools have a web presence. Look at each
school's web site for information on programme types, selection
criterion, eligibility, faculty, financial aid, etc. While some schools
offer on-line applications for admission; others provide
Education In Switzerland
International students undergo the same admission procedure as Swiss citizens: citizens of the Principality of Liechtenstein, acknowledged refugees, foreigners who themselves or whose parents have been in possession of a Swiss work permit during the last 5 years or who are holders of a federal or federally recognized maturity certificate and children of persons with diplomatic status in Switzerland. Foreign students should also be aware that they will be asked to pay somewhat higher fees should they be accepted on a course. They must therefore be able to prove that they have the financial means to pay both the fees and their living costs. It is no longer possible to obtain working permits, even for the holiday periods.

Some of these colleges may even offer courses which are not serious or even relevant. It is therefore advisable to anyone interested in following such a course to make careful initial investigations into the problem of recognition.
